BMO Employees Help Feed Kids and Seniors and Beautify Transitional Vet Housing

Indiana Employees Work Together for Annual Volunteer Day

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwired - Jun 6, 2013) - Financial professionals from all over Central Indiana took time away from the office recently to help out kids, seniors and veterans in the area. Nearly 130 employees from BMO Harris Bank and BMO Private Bank spent the better part of a day assembling food packs for children and seniors, and beautifying transitional housing for homeless vets.

Teams at Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana assembled Backsack Weekend Packs to provide nutritional food over the weekend for food-insecure children and seniors. Another team will serve at Moreau Apartments, painting, landscaping and cleaning to help brighten transitional housing for homeless veterans.

"In addition to providing corporate financial resources, we are committed to supporting our community through the giving of our employees' time and talents year-round," said Tim Massey, Indiana Regional President, BMO Harris Bank. "BMO Volunteer Day is just another demonstration of that commitment and each year our employees look forward to the day we set aside to help others."

Launched in 2001, BMO Volunteer Day has grown to include approximately 5,600 employees participating in more than 470 projects in communities across the U.S. and Canada, including activities to benefit children and youth organizations, elder care, food banks, community housing, health care facilities, family resource centers, parks and recreational facilities, military personnel, relief organizations and homeless shelters.
